The coastal path has some steep climbs. Total ascent is 450m during the day.

There's been a settlement at the mouth of the River Teign since the Dark Ages.  The town of Teignmouth grew up in the 1700's as a fishing port and then as a fashionable resort during the Georgian period.

This is going to be a walk up the Teign Estuary across the river to Shaldon on the opposite bank before heading across country to hit the coastal path south of Labrador Bay.

We'll then follow the coastal path back towards Teignmouth, making a detour through the Smugglers Tunnel to Ness Cove before hopefully catching the ferry from Shaldon back across the estuary into the centre of Teignmouth where we'll be able to relax at one of the many quayside inns if you wish....

Please note - the Ferry is £2 per person and they only accept cash (no cards).

Dogs are welcome to join us on this event but please note we will be planning to catch the (small) Sheldon Ferry across to Teignmouth at the end so please make sure your dog is happy getting into a small boat (Dogs go free on the ferry). We also do ask the following:

  • Please appreciate the fact that not everyone is a dog owner or lover- especially when we stop to eat
  • Please ensure you adhere to the Countryside Code at all times - see (Keeping Dogs Under Effective Control)

If your dog is uncontrolled and strays in open land frightening other animals or livestock, the leader is supported by the OutdoorLads board of trustees to ask you to leave the event as this is not acceptable behaviour.
